Omega Constellation Chronometer C Shape

Omega Constellation Chronometer C Shape

SKU: VWS-1461

Here is a beautiful, all original Omega Constellation Chronometer from 1968. The silver sunburst dial is in very fine condition, with a steel Omega logo, emblem and Constellation star and steel hour markers with black contrast, double at the poles. The dial has a tiny mark at the “E” in the Omega logo and a few small marks around its center. There are also some discolored spots around the edge of the dial, perhaps most notable at around 7-8 o’clock. None of these marks are very visible to the naked eye. The dauphine hands are in very fine condition. The steel framed window at 3 o’clock displays the date, which can be semi quick-set by repeatedly pulling the crown out to the outermost position. This should only be done with the hands at the bottom half of the dial.


The stainless steel bezel is in fine condition with light overall wear. The slim stainless steel case with the original crown on a C shaped case is in fine condition, with a radial pattern on the face and brushed sides. It shows some overall wear, perhaps most notable a nick above the crown. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition with some overall wear. It has a crisp and clean Geneva observatory medallion in a radially patterned center, showing a few marks.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, perhaps the best watch movement ever made, Omega’s caliber 564, beats strongly and accurately to within about +8 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in October 2021 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


This is an understated yet dignified watch that is very versatile and can be used for most any occasion. Wearing it will give you that wonderful sense of heritage and history as you admire it on your wrist.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
